This bird is not actually related to the Sparrow but is a member of the Accentor family. The black bill is finer than that of a sparrow, because it feeds mainly on insects and not seed. The sexes are very alike, though the female is a little drabber. This is an agitated bird, forever flicking its wings and tail.
They nest in dense hedges and shrubs in April and produce 2-3 clutches a year.
